Really?  You turn the radio off and then you can never turn it on
again without pulling the battery?

If so it's quite the oversight, isn't it.  So a userspace app to
control the GSM radio manually would even be pointless then, because
you can't get it turned back on?

I wonder if there is some extra pad where a modification could be
made, to pull down a reset line via software?
